Brief Biography

I am a second year graduate student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at University of California Berkeley (UCB), advised by Prof. Costas J. Spanos. I am also a Graduate Student Researcher for the Singapore-Berkeley Building Efficiency and Sustainability in the Tropics (SinBerBEST) program. My research interests are Machine Learning, Optimization and their application to Smart Buildings and other Energy Systems.

I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur with a B.Tech.(Honors) in Electrical Engineering in 2016. During my undergraduate studies, I was fortunate to work with Prof. Ashok Pradhan on several projects. Prior to joining UC Berkeley, I worked for a year at Mentor Graphics, India at Noida as a R&D Engineer.
